LOOK AT US!
Hey, we are going into year 2010 with a bang - no pun intended.
We're located at www.GibsonPharmacyGP.com now - with Kathy's Korner recipes located there. Right now, the recipes are in alphabetical order, according to the recipe name. We also have an archive section of our newsletters that we are building up, as well as an information section about our compounding.
Also we are on Facebook and Twitter.

MS Cafe - Steak and Lounge Fusion
2615 Majesty Drive, Arlington
Fri & Sat 7am-10pm
Yes, it is over by Six Flags - across the street from Mariono's. We have had the salmon, ribeye, herb crusted catfish, and sushi in evening. All have been very tasty and unique in flavorings. Owners are very friendly, the service is above average, glasses are kept filled. I personally recommend the salmon - I have had it twice and it was great both times. They also serve breakfast but we haven't tried it yet.
617 W. Marshall, Grand Prairie
Everybody knows Isabella's and how great all their food is. There are signs on the building for rent. The other stores next to them are for rent - not Isabella's. So call them - enjoy their great food today and tomorrow. Tell them that Kathy & Gary said Hi!
COMPOUNDING AND P2C2
As you may or may not know, compounding is one of the things Gary loves to do in our pharmacy, and it has helped a lot of people over the years. When a particular drug is taken off the market and it is the only thing that has brought relief, that is a tradedy for our patient's health and quality of life. Whether the drug is just discontinued (usually due to choice of manufacturer's financial decision) or commerically unavailable due to shortage of materials, etc. Example As of writing of this newsletter ARMOUR Thyroid is commerically unavailable. With doctors permission, we are able to compound that for our patients - our patients are having wonderful outcomes with our compounded prescriptions and are reporting feeling much better with the compounded product. We are using Thyroid Powder USP which is what ARMOUR Thyroid is made from. If this is something you or your loved ones are interested in, please drop by the pharmacy or have your doctor contact us. With all compounds, we need a doctor's permission and prescription.
As stated above, compounding a prescription can be a life improving step for some of our patients. It may be as simple as making a prescription without lactose when all the commerically available ones have lactose. To a person who can't handle lactose, that is a life changing improvement.
There is a group who protects those right for you - our patients. That group is P2C2 - they protect the rights of patients in America to get all their medical needs met with pharmacy compounding. We highly recommend going onto their website Patients and Professionals For Customized Care (P2C2). It is free and carries some interesting information. They are very interested also in keeping Bio Identical Hormone Therapy available to the women who find relief through their compounded hormones. So please check it out.
